BOULDER, Colo. — Investigators are looking for the suspects they say attacked and robbed a man outside of a bar on the Pearl Street Mall Monday night.

According to police, a 23-year-old man stepped outside to smoke at a bar located on the 1300 block of Pearl St. at around 11 p.m., when a man approached him and asked for a cigarette.

The suspect then fell to the ground after he was hit from behind, and was then attacked by two other men who stole his wallet.

The victim said the men appeared to be transients, but he could not provide more details on their appearance.

Several bystanders came to the victim’s aid after he was attacked.
